As I was clearly aware, the rooms are small and simple. However, this hotel was exactly what I was looking for. It's in a fantastic location (right in the pedestrian area, 5 minute walk from the tram and from the seaside), is nice and clean (rooms have apparently been redone recently), safe (I was travelling alone) and a great value.
There isn't a restaurant, but you can have breakfast served in your room if you like. There are little fridges which are helpful. The only thing I would have enjoyed them adding-either in the room or perhaps in the lobby would be a little station to make tea or coffee.
It's the service that really prompted me to write this review. The owner was at the front desk each day and gave me a nightly restaurant recommendation, often made reservations for me, helped me get to museums, helped me book concert tickets, even helped me take the bus back to the airport (so easy from the hotel location) instead of a taxi, saving me about 35 Euros. He was just FANTASTIC and I can't say enough about his willingness to help.
So-if you like the smaller hotels, where they know your name, and you feel very safe, and are willing to give up the 'big chain' hotel frills, this is your place.
I would stay there again in a heartbeat, if I was alone or with a friend that was also a lower-maintenance type of person. Try to get a room with a little balcony...a nice touch.
